Desmond Bishop looking good for Vikings


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2013) New Vikings linebacker Desmond Bishop isn't working with the first-team offense yet but has shown that he's over the hamstring injury that sidelined him in 2012.

Vikings line up Desmond Bishop, Erin Henderson


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2013) Vikings linebacker Desmond Bishop is expected to start at weakside linebacker this season, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Coach Leslie Frazier announced that Bishop would start outside Thursday. The report said it came as somewhat of a surprise to many who assumed Bishop, who played inside in the Packers' 3-4 defense, was brought in to play middle linebacker while Erin Henderson shifts back to his weakside job. Henderson will stay in the middle in the base defense and in the nickel.

"Because [Bishop] is coming in so late, what we're trying to do is get him up to speed on how we do things from a defensive standpoint," Frazier said. "We think the best way of getting that done is starting him on the outside."


Desmond Bishop healthy, ready to go


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/27/2013) New Vikings linebacker Desmond Bishop, who missed the 2012 season because of a hamstring injury, said he was feeling good, was working out hard and would be ready to go when training camp starts, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

"I’m in Arizona training to get to 110 percent, to get through the entire season, which I'm sure I will," he said.

Bishop played inside linebacker in Green Bay, but there has been some talk he will work at middle linebacker and on the outside with the Vikings. Has he been told what his role will be?

"They told me all the positions were interchangeable," Bishop said. "Nothing is set in stone. I feel like I'm versatile. I can play middle or the two outsides. We'll see how that unfolds during training camp."


Vikings sign Desmond Bishop


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bishop, who was cut last week by the Packers, is expected to compete for a starting job at both middle and weakside linebacker. Bishop tore his hamstring last August and missed the entire season. Prior to that, Bishop had over 100 total tackles in each of the previous two seasons for the Packers.

Most likely, Bishop will start on the weak side of Minnesota's defense.
